2012 prerunner mild build

i guess i'll start a build thread, just to keep track of my progress.
i started with a 2012 TSS edition prerunner double cab. came stock with 20" rims an 265/50 toyo proxes stII.



my first purchase was a curt hitch, and then a custom fit wiring harness. next up, i got a set of 5100s from downsouth motorsports, and a set of 2" aal from topguncustomz.com. those sat on a shelf for a few weeks while i read everything i could find on lifting.

also during that time, i added this aero 2525xl with resonators. love it!



i found this leer topper/shell on craigslist, had to drive from biloxi to valdosta ga. to get it, but the $500 price was irresistible. good opportunity for first roadtrip







found these 17x8 fj wheels on ebay for $688 shipped. they have a +5 offset and 4.76 backspace. bought a set of michelin 265/70 17 at 2. installed on 30mar12. with no lift, this combo rubs slightly, mostly when backing up.

front no lift


rear no lift


side no lift


my son and i installed the aal today, and will do the fronts tomorrow. i'm planning on setting them at 1.75"

i was amazed at the difference in hieght that the tires gave me. after adding the aal, i was astounded. it is so high in the back. it reminds me of my 2007 tundra a lot. pics tomorrow
